Am I too perfect?

The Twirl and Swirl of Letters

As a fiction writer, I always worry if my characters are “too perfect,” namely, Mary Sues.

The Writer’s Mary Sue Test

One thought on “Am I too perfect?

  1. Hi,

    Just wanted to say I enjoyed your blog and the Mary Sue Test. My heroine, thank goodness, wasn’t like me and I’m not living through her. From all indications, she’ll be just fine! Thanks for such an eye-opening test. I’ll have to try it on the rest of my characters!
